Lot #246. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 1995

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 WS.
"Fabulous red Burgundy--a true vin de terroir. The pure, crafty aromas jump out of the glass, titillating with rose petal, violet and tar notes. Fans out with the silkiest mouthfeel imaginable, delivering layers of wet earth, chalky stone, black currant and oak-infused spice. The tannins are amazingly classy, so it's enjoyable upon release, but clearly it should get even better in the cellar . . . . [Only] 835 cases made. [1998 Top 100: Rank 23]" Wine Spectator, Aug 31, 1998
Provenance: The Méribel Cellar
Notes: 2.5cm, nicked and lightly scuffed capsule, scuffed and lightly marked label.
